What we offer
Acceleration of entrepreneurial projects seeks to reduce time to market for innovative products and services, from establishing the value proposition (MVP) to validating its sales potential (product/market fit). We seek to limit the risk inherent in more disruptive proposals and facilitate access to the funding they need to launch the new product/service.
As the health market is highly specific, with its extreme regulatory complexity and the wide range of public and private stakeholders involved, many accelerators and specialized programs have been created, including this one from Biocat.
Acceleration programs vary, but essentially they provide support for entrepreneurs in four areas:
- Training/mentoring (CRAASH, BCN Health Booster, EIT Health Amplifier, Patient Innovation Bootcamp, etc.)
- Networking (CRAASH, BRIGHT, BCN Health Booster, EIT Health Amplifier, etc.)
- Attracting investment (CRAASH, The Investment Readiness Series, access to Next Generation funds, etc.)
- Specialized services (Safe & Medtech, etc.)
If you’ve set up your startup or are taking your first steps to do so, contact Biocat and we’ll explain how you can accelerate your project and how our programs can help.
